DEEP STATE #1-8 (Justin Jordan / Ariela Kristantina)

Le monde est plein de secrets et c’est le travail de John Harrow de les contenir. Le héros de la nouvelle série Deep State imaginée par le scénariste Justin Jordan (Luther Strode, Spread) et l’artiste Ariela Kristantina pour l’éditeur Boom! Studio, Harrow travaille pour le gouvernement en tant que gardien des plus noirs secrets de la Nation.
Mais lorsque apparait sur Terre la véritable raison derrière le voyage sur la Lune, Harrow et sa partenaire Ms. Branch ont bien du mal à assurer la sécurité des citoyens.

Deep State est le premier projet de Justin Jordan (sur les trois prévus) que publiera l’éditeur Boom! Studio à partir de novembre.

[quote]I try to stay to where I’m extrapolating from actual science to get where the stories need to go, and where, if the stuff was revealed, it wouldn’t necessarily make the world unrecognizable to the reader. As a concrete example, I’d say that Warren Ellis’ “Global Frequency” is about where we are in terms of the fantastic stuff.

Now, the secrets – well, the first thing we learn in the very first issue is that the 1969 moon landing was real, unlike the conspiracy theory, but it was actually the third time we’d been to the moon, and the part of the mission you didn’t see was them recovering the bodies from the last trip.

In the real world, the U.S. government has gotten into some extremely shady shit. The version of the government in “Deep State” is just as shady, but somewhat better at not letting them get out. Although I have no proof that someone like John Harrow doesn’t exist in the real world.[/quote]

WHY WE LOVE IT: You know all those conspiracy theories you hear about? Like how the Jonestown Massacre was a failed MKULTRA experiment by the government, or how Lee Harvey Oswald was trained and brainwashed to be an assassin? Well, what if some of those were true? Deep State is a dream (nightmare?) come true for conspiracy theory nuts like us here at BOOM!
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: With Luther Strode, Dead Body Road, and Spread, Justin Jordan has become one of the eminent voices in hard-hitting, intelligent, original comics, and Ariela Kristantina (Death of Wolverine) brings her unique, idiosyncratic style that has made her a breakout talent. If you’re even remotely interested in conspiracy theory stories from comics like Planetary and Sleeper to films like Enemy of the State and Three Days of the Condor, you’ll be gripped by Deep State!
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: John Harrow doesn’t exist, and his job is to make sure that other things don’t exist, too. At any given time, the government is running dozens of black book operations, experiments that aren’t on any official record and are never acknowledged to exist. Some of these are innocuous. Some of them are monstrous beyond reason. And most of the time, they go as expected and the public is never the wiser. Most of the time. John Harrow’s job is to handle them when things go wrong, and do anything to make sure the government’s secrets stay just that—secret.[/quote]
